Ercole Barovier

Nautilus

In 1936, two famed Venetian glass houses - Vetreria Artistica Barovier and Ferro Toso – combined. A year later, the firm’s proprietor and head designer Ercole Barovier created this marvelous nautilus shell, an Art Deco rendition of a form eagerly sought out for Renaissance curiosity cabinets. Barovier remained at the head of the workshop until 1972, constantly developing new technical and stylistic innovations; his fifty-year career positions him as among the most important figures in the history of Murano glass.
